DVD Review

I have heard 600 bad things about this movie and nothing good… so me being me couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on a copy and see for myself! It actually wasnt that bad at all!
I like Big Show, I have a soft spot for the guy; his infectious sense of humor and smile are qualities I just cannot ignore in a man! Is he a good actor? Not bad, not Johnny Depp but I was very happy to see a wrestler in a role that didn’t involve him toting a gun, blowing shit up (Although there is a bus incident….) and generally running all over the United States Of America in shredded clothes looking for bombs and/or bad guys! This one is definitely a feel-good sort of a film and Big Show plays his character, the hapless Walter, exceedingly well; and looks like he has a lot of fun doing it!
The story follows the soft-hearted Walter, a 35 year old who grew up in an orphanage (and stayed there!), as he gets involved with a debt-ridden con artist (Eddie) who convinces him he can fight so he can pay back a local criminal he owes money to. Walter goes with him and he tries to become a fighter to earn money for renovations to the place he calls home. They head to New Orleans so he can compete in the championships and encounter all sorts of trouble on the way there. Walter even has to fight ‘Bare knuckle Dave’ who turns out to be a grizzly bear!
OK so this isn’t The Matrix, there’s no complicated plot lines or thought provoking morals in this story but it’s nice, easy going and one you can watch with your kids. I know for sure that my 8-year-old boy is going to LOVE this especially when he sees The Big Show and all the goofy stuff he gets up to as Walter.

My opinion is, if you have kids sit them down and watch it them. You may not roar with laughter but I’m pretty sure they will!

(Official Blurb – Knucklehead is a knock-out comedy in the vein of Blades of Glory, Happy Gilmore or Dodgeball. Set in the very popular and exciting world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), our story follows a low-rent con artist named Eddie Sullivan (Mark Feuerstein). After incurring a large debt with a local criminal ringleader, Eddie creates a get-rich-quick scheme and enlists a sweet gentle giant named Walter (Paul Big Show Wight) as his unwitting accomplice. Eddies plan: travel from town to town with Walter and enter small, unsanctioned MMA fighting competitions for prize money. Walters orphanage – the only home hes ever known – also needs funds desperately, so he reluctantly agrees. During their journey, Walter discovers what life is like outside the orphanage while Eddie becomes morally conflicted over whether to take all the loot for himself or keep his promise to Walter, the one person he can actually call a friend.)
